    Grief Counseling Mission Statement

    Our mission is to support and encourage the students who

    have lost a loved one. School counselors will provide

    services for students who have suffered a loss. Our

    purpose is to give our students an opportunity to

    acknowledge their feelings and increase awareness of the

    stages of grief and to teach coping techniques.

    The Counselors Cadre of the Greenup County School district put together

    the information contained in this plan. They have modified the work of

    Izetta Smith, formerly of the Dougy Center, now with Kaiser Permanente,

    gathered information from the Portland, Oregon Public Schools, and

    compiled data from the Greenup County School district.

    In a time of loss, Counselors and other staff are prepared to provide

    assistance in helping members of the school community with the loss.

    Typically, a loss would include the death of a student, family member,

    teacher or other staff member. This can include car accidents, homicide, and

    accidental deaths. Deaths from a long-term illness could include those from

    cancer, cystic fibrosis and other chronic illnesses. Teen suicide, the second

    leading cause of death among 11-19 year olds, has a profound impact on the

    students, staff and community. Issues surrounding national and community

    disaster situations may have a direct impact on the students and staff and it is

    important to maintain a sense of order to the highest degree possible.
